Petronius

The revival of a typeface design

 

The Petronius was designed in 1976 by the Dutch painter J.H. Moesman, who was mainly known for his surrealistic works. However, working for the Dutch railways as a lithographer, he gained interest in calligraphy. Moesman designed this typeface based on the handwriting of “the ordinary Roman”. Autobahn digitized the typeface and added several new glyphs, like the at and euro signs.

 

The typeface is available for purchase in our shop.
